jobs and improve the economy in every one of our districts, in every state in the union. i would turn, if i could, to my colleague, mr. polcan, who has some of the rations. >> i am glad you brought this amendment forward, mr. blumenauer. when i was on the joint committee on finance, we were the only committee in the country that had to approve every single dollar that came through from the recovery dollars. in our state, every single dollar came to our committee. i got to see exactly where those investment dollars went to our transportation projects. we had a report at the time from the road building and vertical construction industry, not your most left-wing organization, that said 54,000 jobs were saved or created in wisconsin because of that investment in infrastructure. i remember sitting in this very room and i asked dr. elmendorf that same question. i said is it true, and he set up to 3.3 million jobs were saved or created because of those recovery dollars. i can tell you in wisconsin, we saw the benefit. it came from the private sector. we saw the benefit for small businesses -
to the sequester republicans will not replace. just as the economy is improving for our neighbors and small businesses back home. in contrast, the democratic alternative will cren rate 1.2 million more job, stop the sequester and in committee, democrats proposed to close those special interest tax loopholes that riddle our tax code, republicans said no. democrats proposed to offset unwise republican cuts to medical research like alzheimer's, cancer, diabetes research at n.i.h., republicans said no. democrats tried to cut the special interest spending in the tax code to offset republican cuts to students who rely on pell grants but republicans said no. mr. van hollen: i yield the gentleman another minute and a half. the chair: the gentleman is recognized. ms. castor: the democrats in the budget committee proposed to strengthen medicare and replace the republican plan to turn medicare into a voucher program. all it does is simply shift the cost tour families and older neighbors. mr. speaker, this republican budget is not consistent with american values. it is not fiscally responsible. it is a
reduction is very important, but creating the millions of jobs that our economy desperately needs is even more important. i would go further than that. everybody -- i could tell you in the state of vermont and i suspect in the other 49 states, we have a serious problem with roads and bridges and water systems and schools, broadband. we need to invest in our infrastructure to make this country more productive. when you do that you create jobs. so i am a big fan of investing in the infrastructure and strongly supportive of that proposal. i would have gone higher. host: you can see here in wall street "washington journal," republican plan and blue plan in -- for the democrats. you can see that there. guest: that's the real issue. do you really think that the only way we can move to deficit reduction is cut, cut, cut? when revenue at 18.2%, the lowest in 60 years, i think there needs to be a balanced approach and we need to close outrageous loopholes that corporations enjoy. host: talking to bernie sanders, independent in vermont. folks are eager to talk to you. let's go to edward in grand pr
class and an economy built on nnovation. in my state of the union address, our most important task was to drive that economic growth. i meant it. we should be asking ourselves the questions -- how to make america a land for good jobs? how do we equip people with skills and training to do those jobs? how do we make sure that hard work leads to a decent iving? please feel free to sit down. i'm sorry. everyone is standing. maybe it was one of the effects of the sequester. you had to get rid of chairs. [laughter] i chose argonne national lab because few areas hold more promise for creating good jobs and growing our economy than how we use american energy. after years of talking about it, we are poised to take control of our energy future. we produce more oil that we have in 15 years. we import less oil than we had in 20 years. we have doubled the amount of renewable energy that we generate from wind and solar. tens of thousands of good jobs to show for it. we are producing more natural gas than we have before that hundreds of thousands of good jobs to show for it. we have supported the
to work productively, for us to roll up our sleeves and get the economy working again, get the millions of people who are struggling to find jobs back to work again. and i am hopeful this conversation today was a positive step in that direction. >> any questions? >> a lot of this conversation has been focused on entitlement reform. i am wondering if you heard anything in there that the president said about a willingness to bring down the cost of entitlements. >> the president has says paul -- has said publicly and reiterated privately he understands that until -- let me put it the way i like to put it. until you make the eligibility for entitlements, you can never solve the problem. until you solve the entitlement concerned, in a way that saves medicare and saves social security and medicaid, because the trusties he appointed are all in trouble, you also cannot save health care, you cannot save the country until you fix this problem. i think the president understands that. his political base is pretty wedded to trying to get additional revenue as a condition of solving the problem. ther
to us that -- quote -- "the need to transform the world's energy economy while addressing global climate change is not only a religious and moral imperative, it is a strategy for security and survival. the united states conference of catholic bishops says that -- and i quote -- "at its core, global climate change is not about economic theory or political platforms, nor about partisan advantage or interest group pressures. it is about the future of god's creation and one human family." the bishops asked congress to consider seven principles in shaping responsible climate change policies. one, addressing global climate change means protecting the common good. two, climate change will hit the most vulnerable communities the hardest. three, we must seek solutions that enhance rather than diminish the economic standing of the poor. four, new resources must be made available to poor communities to adapt to the effects of a changing climate. five, we must protect vulnerable people from the negative human health effects of climate change. six, local affected communities should have a voi
as it is because it's really a commitment to the economy of the whole region as to this particular project. having said that, the super bowl bid is an incredible thing and the strength of our bid is a collaboration of this whole region. this is how we think we will win this bid. this is not for any one particular city, it's us working together. not only on transportation issues, not only on cites, but all the hospitality that we have set. i want to thank all the regionals for working together. we want that super bowl xv very badly. we think we have the greatest opportunity to work for it and not only to win that bid, but to get ourselves in an incredible rotation for other super bowl hosting. we look at this long-term and it's the reasonable approach that will give us the strengths for the nfl to take into consideration. i want to be thankful for all the regions mayor's for joining us and the 49er organization. they brought us together at this time. it's going to be a great thing for san francisco. thank you. >> thank you for coming out. this is an amazing site. there are a thousand people working
for a retirement crisis even as the stock market sits near highs and the economy shows improvement. host: so we're getting your take on this. your retirement andization. tell us if you are and why and if you are not, why not? it's a story in the "usa today" as well this morning confidence in retirement continues to flail about this report, because americans have to cope with many immediate financial concerns retirement is taking a backseat. only 2% of workers and a% of retirees say retirement is their most pressing issues. among other worries -- host: at least many americans have a more realistic perspective about retirement says the senior vice president of retirement and investor services at the principle financial group. host: in arkansas, a democrat, are you saving? caller: yes, i save every penny i can get my hands on. host: 401-k or how are you saving? caller: c.d.'s and bank accounts that are ensured. host: why not put it in the market? caller: i can't afford to lose it. i've seen too many people lose their behinds and with what little money i've saved all my life, i can't afford to lose
measures also create good quality american jobs that can help grow our economy for the future. it's a win-win that we should all support. that's why last month i reintroduced two bills that would help our local communities implement these cost saving measures. one is the coastal state climate change planning act which would provide for coastal states who wish to carry out adaptation projects in order to prepare for the impacts of climate change. and another bill is the water infrastructure resiliencey and sustainability act, supporting states wishing to update their aging storm, waste and drinking water systems in order to adapt for climate change. these bills would help our local communities to plan and prepare for the impacts of climate change and increased extreme weather. our communities deserve protections from these potentially devastating events, and we have a responsibility to help. mr. speaker, we have a choice. we can continue to spend tens of billions of dollars annually on emergency aid packages that will only grow in size and quantity or we can spend a fraction of that on pla
. and stay the course. that's the message from the fed chairman ben bernanke today. he says our economy is improving but it still needs help. so the fed will keep interest rates at record low levels and will keep buying $85 billion in bonds each month. stocks like that, the dow up 56 points. briefly hitting a new record. the nasdaq up 25. the s&p up 10. of course, investors the world over are still watching the tiny island nation of cyprus as it nears possible bankruptcy. banks there are closed for the rest of the week now. and lawmakers are working on a plan b after parliament rejected a proposal to tax people's savings accounts. the fox business network peter barnes is live in the newsroom in washington. how concerned is the fed about cyprus? >> well, shep, he said the feted is paying attention to it, monitoring cyprus carefully. he said that so far its problems don't appear to be spreading to the u.s. or other countries. and that's the big concern here that this could become a contagion and trigger another financial crisis. but, bernanke suggested cyprus is unique, that its banking s
is -- we've got two crisises going on. one we are in a job crisis, a slow economy, and how do you address that, austerity and cuts, spending cuts, and raising taxes, and the republicans are right about that raising taxes slows the economy, cutting spending close the economy. we are trying to deal with both of those crisis at the same time. we've got to 3.5 trillion in revenue increases and spending cuts while the economy has continued to sort of grind slowly. i think what we're looking at now, what we're hoping i think, everybody hopes both side can come together on it, again, how do we get to the 4 trillion that bowles-simpson recommended without killing the economy? and i think that's why you get both these sets of facts that are true. both side are actually right about this. now the question is -- and we've avoided killing the economy by trying to address it. jon: everybody a grows that the long-term driver of the problem are the programs like medicaid, social security. so this president doesn't have to run again. why not do something bold and tell americans, you know, if you're under
, instead of the steak knife is tough for the economy, senator murray said this is a great plan for everyone as being pro-growth, i don't know what a trillion dollars in national tax rates is going for growth, i don't see it. neil: rick, you are tight with a lot of powerful democrats, i know what bothers them is he is taking on entitlements, he is not really he is taking them on. carney said yesterday, think of changing the ages, and you know and a nonstarter. so, if entitlements are off the table for a lot of democrats right now, we're going nowhere fast? >> you have to be a little bit careful. we know that murray's budget, opening shot from democrats ryan's budget opening shot from the republican, president somewhere in the middle, important to keep this in mind. i will tell you, i have to disagree when you say ryan budget does not take a cleave torent tight imminents -- clivecleaver to entitlements, 5n medicare and medicaid that is heavy, the thing that shocked me about his budget, i have to tell you, you know i'm not the biggest fan of representative ryan, but it at least it has been re
and what we really need to do is to focus on growing the economy. the deficit is there. we can deal with it. but growing the economy is the first priority. >> yeah. >> congressman ryan, president obama campaigned on protecting the middle class. so why all of a sudden is chained cpi up there for grabs. even nancy pelosi is starting to embrace it here. are we seeing the democrats shift towards the republican position on protecting the big three? >> well, i'm not sure nancy pelosi is there just yet. i thought she was very careful on what she said, protecting the poor, protecting those seniors. so everything's fungible. and i'll go over battles for the poorest of the poor, our children and senior citizens with nancy pelosi any day of the week. and i'm confident in the house with the leadership of people like keith and john that we will be able to hold a line on some of this from the democratic side. but it does get worrisome every now and again when you hear these comments. i know you've got to be conciliatory and be ready for a grand bargain, but we're not going to sell our soul in the process
economy and creates good jobs that american people need to support their families. we must balance our budget for our students. those who are currently in our universities and community colleges should feel confident that an investment in their education will lead them to good-paying jobs when they graduate. a balanced budget gives them that confidence that their future will not be threatened by staggering debt. most important we must balance our budget for our children and grandchildren who deserve the same chance of the american dream that we have been given. rather than handing them a bill for this generation's irresponsibility, a balanced budget will allow us to hand them a brighter future, an american future. our budget, a balanced budget, represents a departure from the status quo here in washington and it represents house republicans' commitment to moving our nation forward in a fiscally responsible way. i urge my colleagues to support this resolution and i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentleman from maryland, m

of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget. my home state of oregon is the middle of an exciting demonstration of how to squeeze out the waste we all know is there and realign incentives. instead of the empty ritual of pretending to repeal obamacare, let's work together to accelerate reform for all americans. if the oregon experiment works, and frankly many of these efeshencies by the way are already achieved in other parts of the country and with some private health systems, we could save more than $1.2 trillion that is the flawed sequester is suppos
